From the dj flap, "The owner, general manager, manager of the team, and a player's wife died less than two years after the final out of the '69 World Series. Another wife suffered a nervous breakdown, and of the 25 players on the team, no less than fourteen have been divorced and two, pitcher Taylor and third baseman Garrett, have been divorced twice. Catcher Grote served time in jail for cattle sale fraud; outfielder Jones received a suspended sentence for forging checks; and a seldom used pitcher, Jack DiLauro, joined a California commune in 1970 and has not been heard from since."
